GDPR – What is that?

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new EU regulation which replaces the EU data protection directive dating from 1995. The new regulation aims to significantly improve the protection of personal data of EU citizens and to make businesses and public authorities subject to stricter requirements regarding the collection and processing of personal data. The GDPR will be published on 25. This will enter into force on 1 May 2018. The Regulation incorporates many of the requirements of the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive with regard to data protection and security, or further developed. In addition, several new provisions have been added, which strengthen the rights of data subjects and provide for more severe sanctions for violations.

Whenever a data subject is about to provide personal data, data controllers (usually a company) must ensure that the data subject has given his/her prior consent. The GDPR also redefines the disclosure standards for obtaining consent. These must be expressed & voluntarily, for the specific case, in an informed and unambiguous manner”;. The persons responsible must address the data subjects in a “clear and simple”; legal language which & must be clearly distinguished from the other facts”;. Those responsible must also provide evidence that their processes are compliant with the rules and are always followed. Under the previous EU Data Protection Directive, the consent of a data subject could be inferred if his or her actions or omissions left no doubt as to his or her willingness to consent. The Directive thus allowed for the possibility of opt-out mechanisms. This will change with the GDPR, because now the person concerned must give his or her consent „in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative act“.

Your customers must therefore not be forced to give their consent or be kept in ignorance of their consent to the processing of their personal data. In addition, your customers must know exactly what they are giving their consent for and they must be informed in advance of their right to withdraw their consent. Obtaining consent presupposes a clear sign of consent – silence, already ticked boxes or inactivity on the part of the persons concerned do not constitute consent. In the future, it is therefore important that you inform your users sufficiently during the consent process.

The Regulation also provides for two new rights for data subjects: a “right to be forgotten”/em>”, which obliges data controllers to inform recipients of requests for erasure, and a “right to data transferability”/em>”;, which allows data subjects to request a copy of their data in a standard format. These two rights make it easier for users to request the deletion of any information stored about them or the transmission of any information collected.

Data subjects have already had the right to request access to their data. The DSGVO extends these rights. In most cases you will not be able to charge a fee for a request for information unless you can prove that the costs involved are excessive. There is also a significant change in the deadline for processing an application for information. The currently applicable period of 40 days will be significantly shortened. In certain cases, undertakings may refuse to process a request for information, for example if the request is considered manifestly unfounded or unreasonable. However, in order to be able to admissibly reject an application, companies need clear guidelines and procedures, and they must be able to justify why a particular application meets the criteria laid down.

Collection, processing and use of personal data.

You can visit our site without providing any personal information.

When do we collect data?

We collect data exclusively for the purpose of carrying out our business purposes or to provide information with the prior consent of our website visitors. It is generally possible to use the website without disclosing personal data. If personal data is collected, it will only be collected, queried and processed to the extent necessary to provide the services.

Collection of information.

General information is automatically collected when you access our website. In principle, this information does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the person. This data includes the device used, the web browser used, the operating system or other similar operating data.

Processing of personal data.

When using certain services on our website, data such as first and last name, address, telephone number or even the email address can be collected. This is particularly necessary for enquiries regarding our services in order to be able to establish contact through our employees. This data is protected against misuse by using all necessary organizational and technical security measures. This requires, among other things, the use of up-to-date software, the use of pseudonymisation measures or also encryption during data transfer via HTTPS (SSL certificate). Only those employees who need it have access to the data. All employees are instructed once and repeatedly in the necessities of observing the GDPR.

Revocation, amendments, corrections and updates.

The user has the right to request information free of charge about the personal data stored about him/her. In addition, the user has the right to correct incorrect data, block and delete his or her personal data, provided that this does not conflict with any legal retention obligation.

Contact details in business transactions.

In the course of the business initiation and business processing with our customers we store contact data, contract data, order data, billing data and correspondence. Legal basis: For existing customers, the processing is necessary to fulfil the contract or pre-contractual measures. In the case of potential clients, we refer to the legal basis of the legitimate interest in the business initiation. In the context of the invoicing of services, we are obliged by the Federal Fiscal Code (FFC), the Business Code (CC) and the Value Added Tax Act (VATA) to store the data for the purpose of calculating and adjusting taxes and for our accounting obligations. Without the provision of your data, we cannot meet our obligations. Deletion periods: We store the data of existing customers as long as the business relationship is maintained. After termination we will keep the contact data for a maximum of three years. All billing data will be retained in accordance with the legally required retention data (usually for 7 years) and then deleted or anonymised. Recipients: Beyond our internal authorized employees, only the billing data is passed on to our tax consultants (and thus to third parties).

Applicants to jobs.

We sometimes receive personal data from applicants in letters of application or other documents that are sent to us in the course of an application. This may include name, address, telephone number, hobbies and interests, and qualifications related to the profession. The processing of this data serves as a pre-contractual measure and is only kept evident for a maximum of 6 months in order to be able to react to any legal claims of both parties. If the applicant or we are interested in a longer period of evidence, we will obtain consent for this measure. Personal data collected in this process is only accessible to a few administrative staff members, as well as employees of the management level.

Our website is hosted by World4You, which also provides our email server. With each access to our website the provider of the service collects so-called server log files. This includes the name of the website called up, date, time and file of the call. The amount of data transferred, the browser type, the operating system and the URL of the previously visited page are also logged. The data will be processed for statistical analysis only, whereby the right is reserved to subsequently check log data in case of suspected illegal use.
